Event Description
Join us for coffee and conversation with photographer and visiting lecturer Lori Nix. Originally from Norton, Kansas, Nix lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. Nix constructs her subject matter, painstakingly building the scenes she photographs, using no digital manipulation. Thus, building materials, lighting, issues of scale and space are significant concerns when she is making new work. Her series of photographs include Accidentally Kansas, Some Other Place, Lost, Unnatural History, and The City. Her work is in the collections of numerous museums, including the Spencer Museum of Art. After a short introduction, the audience is invited to ask questions. This is a qualifying event in Design and History of Art for students seeking Arts Engagement certification.
